Panel Session Chaired by Jon Williams


The Gender Pay Gap In The Proposals Sector

5 speakers sharing their findings from in-depth online research

Following Bid Solutions’ 2015 salary survey which showed that average basic salaries for men were nearly 24% higher than women, Strategic Proposals has carried out further on-line research which attracted 600 responses. The speakers will share the findings and discuss practical steps which can be taken to tackle the issue.

This session features five dynamic speakers. Krista Takkala, a consultant with Strategic Proposals, who led the survey; Jon Williams, an APMP Fellow and founding CEO of APMP UK, who helped design the survey and analyse the output; Amanda Nuttall, APMP UK COO and leader of the association’s Apprenticeship project; Martin Smith, Managing Director of Bid Solutions, who first reported on gender pay inequality in the 2008 UK Salary Survey; and Beth Wallace, formerly Group Sourcing Director at RSA.
